    Prices of food in the dome is double than the usual. Make sure to eat before the show,since you can't bring food and drinks inside. This is the place for all major events though!

    Araneta Coliseum is such a beloved relic. Though sometimes I wish the Philippines had a more modern concert venue, you can't beat the historic feel of the place. Enjoy the ambiance.

    Tip from Javalava Manila Tours. One time entry and exit only. All exits are final. Make sure to buy food and drinks before the show starts. Enjoy!

    Tip from Javalava Manila Tours. Try avoiding General Admission as much as possible. Seats don't have cushion. Sound is also very poor. I think they should add more speakers.

    Less than 13k basketball afficionados roar the insides of the coliseum. A one-game affair. The dome loves Ginebra - win or loss. This time its a win!

    Always check your belongings and be alert. Also, be aware of your tickets. There are so many snatchers outside.
